A magical read
on 27 September 2015
This beautiful book simply shines with love. Love for Africa. Love for the numerous animal orphans which need Daphne's care. And love for her family, especially her teacher, husband and soulmate David.
Her autobiography encompasses the recent history of Kenya, it's independence from British rule and the ensuing effect on the wildlife. The decimation of the elephant and rhino population of Africa is well known but this is a personal view of the tragedy of poaching in Tsavo and surrounding areas. Daphne and her team pick up the pieces: traumatised baby elephants which require much psychological as well as physical care if they are to survive and grow to adulthood.
One moment hilarious (ostriches on parade - there's a photo!), the next heartbreaking, this book will make you laugh and cry. Buy it.
